    Hi everyone,

    Just to introduce myself - I'm a long-term Canon SLR user but I was fascinated by the :43: concept and acquired my Pen E-P1 second-hand (thanks eBay!) a few months ago. Whilst I won't be giving up my Canons anytime soon, the E-P1 has become my favourite camera to use, especially in combination with my old Canon FD lenses. I also appreciate the way that more than any other mainstream camera manufacturer, Olympus still retains a sense of their own history. Case in point shown below with the E-P1 next to my lovely old Pen FT (eBay again, along with pretty much all of my camera gear).

    I really enjoy looking at what everyone is achieving with their :43: systems and seeing the old legacy lenses brought back to life on modern digital cameras.

    Thanks, Nic
